United States actress Margot Kidder, who played reporter Lois Lane in the "Superman" movies, has died at age 69, a statement from the funeral home handling her arrangements said Monday.

While there hasn't been any public documentation on the cause of death, it was reported she passed away at the age of 69, in her Montana home.

The cause of death is now unknown.

The royal wedding will be broadcast live on CTV and CTV News Channel beginning at 4 a.m. ET on May 19.

Kidder and Reeve went on to star in three more Superman movies, the fourth and last in 1987. Kidder said in shock. She even got vocal about how our modern day Superman movies took another popular actress, Amy Adams, and basically reduced her role as Lois Lane into nothing.

One year after Superman: The Movie's release, Margot Kidder also starred as Kathy Lutz in The Amityville Horror, for which she earned a Saturn Award nomination.

DC Comics' Twitter account paid tribute, writing, "Thank you for being the Lois Lane so many of us grew up with".

Despite that setback Kidder continued to act on both the silver and small screens, and occasionally on stage.

Famous for her smoky voice and for portraying smart, indomitable characters, Kidder also struggled with addiction and bipolar disorder for much of her life. "Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman [sic] I've ever known", he tweeted.

Kidder had a debilitating auto accident in 1990 that left her badly in debt, confined her to a wheelchair for most of two years and worsened the mental illness she had struggled with for much of her life. In 2011 she was arrested while protesting against an oil pipeline at the White House.

She is survived by her daughter Maggie, the daughter she had with her first husband, American novelist Thomas McGuane.

"And then, nearly a bit too casually, she mentioned that she'd asked her closest friends - if they stopped by her place and found her dead - to tell no one, place her naked body in a bedsheet, drag it up Canyon Mountain, and leave her for her other friends, the wolves". She later was married to French director Philippe de Broca from 1983 to 1984.
